The Absolute Best Way to Promote Your Site For Free Written by Patrick Anderson
I canít stress importance of effective linking strategies enough - they are hidden power of World Wide Web. There are two benefits to exchanging links. One is immediate increase in traffic to your website from referral partners who are thinking of networking with you. This can quite often lead to sales. The second benefit, and most important in our minds, is ongoing funnel of new, pre-qualified prospects it brings to your doorstep.
This is still one of best ways to promote your site for free. And itís easy to do. Make a simple page called "Favorite Resourcs", and start adding links to other peopleís web sites. Be sure to put your display ad in middle of it. Then contact website owners and ask if they would like to exchange links with you. You will be pleasantly surprised by how many will be happy to promote your site!
Here is a step-by-step approach:
First, identify a group of people who know how to reach your target audience. Think of people who come into contact with your market at time they would be considering making a purchase. Find these people through search engines, web rings, and link pages on other websites.
Then, call them or send them an e-mail that talks about things you both have in common. Mention way you came across their name. Tell them reason you think you share a common market. Mention something about your website and show them your "Favorite Resources" page.
Offer to provide them with a link because they would be able to provide a good product, service, or resource that your customers are interested in. Make it very easy for them to come to your site and exchange links. In friendliest way you can, tell them to feel free to come by your site anytime and you will be glad to add their link.
Quick Sure Traffic, Smart Visitor Containment And Higher Web Profits Starting NowWritten by David Gikandi
How do you quickly generate a massive flow of traffic, and make more money out of that traffic? It's very simple really. All you need is a calculator, a few hundred dollars, and your server's log files. Mix that up and you are on to some good web profits. Let us look at how to get that traffic first. Then we will look at how to manage that traffic within your site for optimal profitability. You can use information in this article to get a big boost in your web profits within next few days.
There are many ways to get traffic. Some cost money, some don't. Some are predictable, some aren't. Indeed, you should combine all traffic generation methods available. But if you really want to get that traffic fast, in massive flow, on a predictable date, best way to do that is through ezine (email newsletter) advertising. Ezine ads allow you to describe yourself more than a banner. They also reach all ezines' subscribers on one day. For example, if you bought 150,000 banner impressions on a site, that could take a month to run. But if you put your ad on a newsletter with a subscription of 150,000 people, they will all see your ad in one day when newsletter is sent. So you get a faster result than banners. Depending on product, it isn't unheard of for advertisers to make a return on their ad investment of several hundred-percentage points on same day ad runs. That is fast, and you can keep rolling money back in to buy more ads and expand your profits.
Also, because newsletters are topic-specific, you can target your ad very well. Best of all, click-through rates for ezine ads are very high and ad rates are lower than banner ad rates. If you have a look at http://www.emarketer.com/ereports/email_marketing/welcome.html, you will notice that email ads beat banner ads by as much as 15 times.
All you now need is to find a place where you can buy ezine ad space. The best place to do that is at http://www.pennmedia.com/. PennMedia represents 1000 ezines with a total subscription base of 51 million readers. They are all categorized and you can easily target your ad.
Next, you need to make sure that traffic comes in and actually spends money on your site. Again, there are many things you can do to improve your conversion ratios. There are many books written on how to design a web page for maximum effect. There are dozens of little things you can do to your pages to work well with buyer psychology, load times, and much more. But to know what to do, you would first need to know how people are moving about in your site. You should analyze each page to determine whether it loses visitors to Internet or not. People will always leave your site eventually. What you need to do is make sure they leave after they have purchased and left their email address with you so you can follow up for more sales later. And when they leave, you want them to leave in a way that makes you money. Let us see how to do that.
